A Doll's House Questions

Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.

  1. Do today's women face the same sort of barriers that women did in Nora's time?
  2. In what ways is Torvald caged by societal expectations? What about the other men in the play? Krogstad? Dr. Rank?
  3. How would the play be different if it were set in a country other than Norway?
  4. Would the play still be as relevant if it were set in modern times?
  5. Some critics say the play doesn't give Nora enough time to come to such a life altering conclusion. What do you think?
